Do­maines Paul mas si­lene Chardon­nay aop limoux 2016, france

£9.99, The Co-op, in-store only

With a myth­i­cal la­bel straight out of An­cient Greece, this wine takes its name from Silenus (Si­lene), who, ac­cord­ing to leg­end, was a com­pan­ion to the wine god Bac­chus.

As ever, it starts with the wine: “A glorious, in­tense cit­rus-laden chardon­nay from Limoux... but we felt that the qual­ity of the liq­uid needed to be matched by in­no­va­tive and strik­ing pack­ag­ing,” says Ben Cahill, wine buyer, The Co-op – to make “a wine as eye­catch­ing as the wine is mouth­wa­ter­ing”. Quite so.
